DO I NEED TO ADD A MINERAL MIX TO 'DIY SMART FEED' ?
When making up your own diet it is important to remember there are naturally occurring minerals in all raw materials, some of which may already be high.
An example of this is canola meal which averages 1mg selenium per kg, 100mg zinc per kg and a calcium/phosphorus ratio of 0.35:1. It is important to balance your horses diet when making a home ration.
*Only qualified persons should provide a diet analysis report and balance your horses home made ration for you.
CALCIUM & PHOSPHORUS
Home made formulas often provide a poor balance of calcium and phosphorus. This may create imbalances in your horses nutrient uptake. The additional calcium and phosphorus in 'DIY' will assist horses and ponies with restricted access to good pasture and is important for maintenance of bones, joints and overall health. In some cases it may be necessary to increase the calcium and/or phosphorus to meet increased demand such as when age matters, feed rates are low, pasture is short, late pregnancy, lactation or grazing high Kikuyu pastures.
*If unsure your home built ration is meeting requirements contact us for qualified assistance or diet planning.
